Saturday, 3/7/2020 - Tulip Day in San Francisco

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

It's that time of year again, 100,000 FREE pick-your-own tulips at Union Square, San Francisco.

Girl in tulip fieldYes, that's correct. On Saturday, March 7, over 100,000 tulips will cover Union Square in San Francisco. Best of all, you're invited to visit the site and pick your own bunch of tulips to take home.

A gift from Dutch flower bulb trader Royal Anthos, iBulb.org and the Consulate General of the Netherlands in San Francisco, they are transporting thousands of multicolor tulips to the bustling tourist area of Union Square.

This event will run from 1:00PM to 4:30PM, by which time all tulips will have been picked and on their way to bring springtime cheer to many, many households.

You have to love all the special FREE events in San Francisco, thanks to the courtesy of many.

Good morning Michael Jacobs - spring bulbs are some of my favorites, and tulips are gorgeous. I tend to plant daffodils and narcissus in my garden plot because they self-sow (and I'm lazy!)

Hello Brian England and Barbara Todaro - I can imagine the joy that will be shared tomorrow and all the happy faces at the tulip display in Union Square. Perhaps I can re-arrange my day and walk over to take it in.

Hello Wayne Martin - I will need to re-arrange my day if I want to go to Union Square tomorrow. I would love to see the tulip display (and maybe bring one or two home.)

Hi Sheila Anderson - I'm glad you enjoyed this tulip post! It's springtime here, no matter what the calendar might say.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , Carol Williams and Myrl Jeffcoat  - we're heading "over the hill" [Nob Hill] to check out the tulip display. We're having our first rain, light though it is, since late January; I expect the tulips will make a spectacular display against gray skies. Happy Saturday to you all.

Hi Lottie Kendall - I  hope you got over to Nob Hill for the tulip display. They are blooming here. I went to the Tulip Farm over the weekend and picked Tulips. It was so wonderful. I hope you're doing well. I think of you often and wish the best for you and your husband.

We did, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - it was very generous of the Dutch bulb company and the Netherlands Consulate to give this gift to the people of San Francisco, residents and visitors alike.

Here's Gene at Union Square, with our tulips, with the St. Francis hotel in the background.

Lottie Kendall - Love this photo!!! Gene at the square holding tulips. He looks content and happy to be walking and shopping for tulips too! It reminds me, we can never take anything for granted. Every step we take, having the ability to shop for things that makes us happy, all these things and more are things to be thankful for.

Your friendship to me on ActiveRain is very special. Enjoy your tulips and the love you you have with Gene.

Hi Sharon Tara - last Saturday's tulip give-away was a lot of fun, and a visual treat. A delightful unexpected treat was walking around town and spotting others with their bouquets of tulips - it created an instant bond.

The sight of all the tulips at Union Square was delightful, and the tulips lasted at home for 9 days!! I planted the bulbs in hopes that the foliage would replenish the bulbs and I might get a few volunteers next spring. We'll see.

Stay healthy in your travels, Sharon Lee
